Does Vitamin B12 Really Reduce Tiredness?

Posted by

It is normal to feel some form of tiredness especially after physical exertion. However, if we feel very tired even when we have not performed any physical activity, then there is a problem. When this happens, the sensible thing to do is examine our diet and in particular at how our dietary intake directly influences our energy and stamina.


Vitamin B12 or Cobalamin is a nutrient that has a lot of benefits for each and every individual. We know that vitamin B12 is regarded as a nutrient, which provides the human body with energy unlike any other. It works by helping in the provision of a variety of energy giving elements, essentially glucose to the body. Glucose is the energy that our body uses, and is made available only when Vitamin B12 is in the system. Vitamin B12 helps with the conversion of consumed carbohydrates into glucose which is then distributed to supply various organs of the body.


Having a shortage of vitamin B12 can cause many symptoms associated with fatigue including shortness of breath and even tingling sensations of extremities, in particular the toes. This is due to the body not being able to get the sufficient amount of energy needed. Without adequate levels of energy our bodies are forced to use all supplies on basic functions with little or no surplus, this leads to a person getting tired without even doing anything in particular.

When energy is produced efficiently and distributed to the brain, vital organs and muscles as it should be, it helps our bodies function effectively minimising the stress on our bodies caused by fatigue. When every body part works as it is supposed to, the incidence of getting fatigued when doing something that requires minimal force is usually eliminated, and the ability to perform more physical tasks is substantially increased.

The good news is that vitamin B12 can be obtained from a number of natural food sources like the liver of animals and fish. This makes it very easy to acquire and use, so we can improve our health and well being by increasing our intake. However, sometimes it's not always possible to get enough of this vitamin from food sources and in those instances it is convenient and easy to use a specially formulated supplement such as our advanced vitamin B complex.
